Flamenco is a creative show that arose in Andalusia as a result of cultural miscegenation between Gypsies, Arabs, Jews, and Christians. This Andalusian art combines singing, music and dancing, primarily based on the melody of a guitar.
The many flamenco genres, known as ‘Palos,’ are distinguished by a high level of emotional intensity in the songs’ lyrics as well as in the performances of the artists, who can be singers, guitarists or dancers. Without a doubt, the flamenco tablao is the ideal setting to see this type of performance. Tablaos, the heirs of the ancient cafes-singers, rose to prominence between 1860 and 1919, a period called the Golden Age of Flamenco.
Initially, flamenco was solely about singing, but as time passed, the flamenco dance began to pique the public’s curiosity about the tablaos. The use of the guitar as a vital accompaniment to singing and dancing was incorporated during the show’s peak. The flamenco presentations we can see today result from this mix, combining dancing, singing, and guitar strumming. And all this, you can experience at a Barcelona Flamenco Show.
Across the different flamenco ‘tablao’, several flamenco genres are played throughout the performances, incorporating music, song, and dance.
During a flamenco presentation, the artists interpret diverse genres with alternate tunings, lyrics, and styles, all of which contribute to the performers’ expressiveness. Siguiriya and soleá, for example, are more dramatic cutting sticks, while alegras encourage optimism and create a more celebratory environment throughout the play.
Artists communicate their emotions through dance, poetry, and sound, as well as through body movement, singing, music, rhythm and, most importantly, improvisation.
While there are quite a number of venues where you can enjoy a flamenco Barcelona, experiencing one at an authentic tablao is the real deal. The cozy intimate atmosphere combined with the genuine interior really creates an authentic show that you might miss at the Barcelona City Hall Flamenco.
